‘Eye training’ app claims to be able to train eyes and improve sight in over 40s

London: A new app that claims to be able to improve people’s eyesight by ‘training’ them with a series of exercises has become a hit. Called GlassesOff, it uses a series of patterns to create 15 minutes exercises for users. If done three times a week, its makers say it could mean they no longer need reading glasses after three months.

The app uses a series of games, and tests to improve a user’s eyesight 

First you take a diagnostic test administered by the app, and then follow its customized training regimen. Three days a week, for 12-15 minutes, you’ll go through a series of visual exercises, such as deciphering small gray letters on a gray screen. After two or three months, it claims you can kiss your reading glasses goodbye.
